Pats On The Back For Derry

The last football game at that crumbling kip Lansdowne Road (sorry but not being a member of the sheepskin-coat brigade, I could never get too sentimental about the ground) was the FAI Cup final between Derry City and St. Patrick's Athletic, which was by all accounts a thriller, and which the Candystripes came from behind three times to win 4-3 after extra time. Similar in many ways to the FA Cup final earlier this year. Congrats to Derry on their minor double and hopefully they can overshadow the dull Dubs of Shelbourne once again next year.

Here, Parigot !! Shels ain't a dull Dublin team... they're a dull Ringsend team currently in a Dublin purgatory... Ringsend ain't bleedin' Dublin - are ye a mulla or wha ??
